Re: gdb supported on powerpc-apple-darwin ?

The same configure script is used for binutils, ld, and many other
things, so it's not going to work to single out gdb in the warning
message. In theory one could customize the configure script to say
different things depending on whether it is part of a gdb release,
binutils release, etc, but that would be quite a bit more work for a
situation that is nearly unique to Darwin.

it seems a rather trivial question, however I could not easily find
the answer: is 'plain' FSF gdb supported on Mac OS X (ppc darwin)?
No. That's what this means:
*** This configuration is not supported in the following
bfd opcodes gdb sim
Fair enough :-)
BTW: the error message appears just after invoking configure, and is
not re-displayed later. This is why I missed it the first time. When
the 'gdb' directory is not supported, it might be sensible to show a
big warning at the configure results?
